Is it a coincidence that my roe deer sightings ceased as soon as cattle were released in to the field where I usually watched them? Up to a couple of weeks ago I saw up to five most days, since then I’ve had one single view. Admittedly I don’t spend all my time gazing out of the studio window, but my viewing patterns haven’t changed – and neither has anything else, as far as I can tell. It’s annoying as I was looking forward to sketching them, especially now the weather’s warm enough to open the studio window. I’m curious, so all you deer experts out there: please let me know.
